The Sto. Niño chapel at the Senior Citizens Park in Cebu City now holds 4 p.m. masses on Sundays. The chapel was blessed and open last Easter Sunday.
The chapel features a landmark 30-foot image of the Sto. Nino de Cebu looking across the Mactan Channel.
The chapel was built as part of the Carbon Modernization project of Megawide subsidiary Cebu2World.
“The Sto. Nino, 500 years since its arrival in Cebu, has become the core of Catholic Cebuano identity. Our relationship with the Senyor is very personal for us Cebuanos. You can see a likeness in almost every home. Even in Carbon, you will see the Sto. Nino in many stalls,” C2W Chairman Louie Ferrer said in his welcome address during the blessing in April.
Cebu Archbishop Jose Palma represented the Archdiocese during the signing of the memorandum of agreement and officiated the blessing of the chapel.
